2001 Ford Windstar SE 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
With 2 boy kids we took the van
plunge. A year later the SE is very
satisfying. Sleeps outside and looks
as good today as at delivery. Wheels
are easy to clean. Oil changes are a
breeze (though 5w-20 oil can be tricky
to find) The van is spacious though
kids will find a way to beat each other
its more effort now. The van is almost
too comfortable. At 6'1" #245 at least
once I've wandered on a dark and quiet
road. The back seat is great for
waiting out kiddie parties. Downers:
Unresolved whirring noise at lights
(guess: power steering.) Dealer
couldn't or wouldn't fix it. Needs
more pickup power (but then all
minivans get cut off) The lady differs
but to me traction control is hype.
Backup sensors, VCR with Dual Play
feature. CENTER CONSOLE IS THE ONLY
WAY WITH SUCH A TOY!!! (multiple
kids=multiple movies) Honda has it
wrong putting it under the seat.
MoonRoof and fold down rear seat.
Honda has it right with this concept.
